"I, probably just like all of you, love Disneyland. (Though I’ve only been able to go about six times….) More than anything, it’s because you can feel how professional it is, down to the littlest things. Come to think of it, what first got me interested in drawing was when I went to see 101 Dalmatians at the movie theater when I was in nursery school, and was drawn in by how wonderful the art was. I am grateful."


The Z-Warriors begin their battle with Nappa. Chiaotzu and Tenshinhan sacrifice themselves to defeat Nappa, but it is to no avail. Piccolo then sacrifices himself to save Gohan, but God dies as a result of his death. Goku finally arrives, Vegeta kills Nappa, and Goku and Vegeta begin their epic battle.
